Totally true - I was just playing devil's advocate. For a front-office guy, he did put them in position to win at a good clip - which is probably all a front-office can do.
But I always felt Indy resembled Marino-era Dolphins too much - never quite going out and getting everything they needed to compete because they had a QB who they felt could take up the slack.
